Hi everyone, my name is Roy Im 39 currently, I suffered from polycistic kidneys since childhood , my kidneys started failing in 2015, I survived on in the little I had left and had my living donor kidney transplant in February 2017, I had some complications from the get go as creatinine wouldn't go below 2.2 originally. I did a biopsy and that wasn't conclusive enough. Then the tax doctor switched me from tacrolimus and myfortic to everolimus and tower doses of tacro. That did the deal as creatinine dropped to 1.7-1.8 and stayed around that mark for 3 years.
I resumed work and gym and lived a full schedule. I kept testing every few months and things were normal till last year creatinine creeped up to 2.1 in September 2019 but after lowering tacro from 3.5 to 3mg it went down to 1.9 in October. Everything went back to normal according to them.
this year the pandemic hit us all and I began working from home. My mom also passed away , so I couldn't get tested in April when the whole world was COVID-19 crazy. My doctor was also always traveling so my appointment was finally done in August and tests in September. My BP had gone up and I had began experiencing dizziness and rapid heattbeats.
the tests results on sep 13 came back bad with creatinine at 2.8. I got admitted on sep 15 and given IVfluids and creatinine crept up to 3.35. They did another biopsy yesterday and creatinine was down to 3 on sep 16.
I am so worried of rejection and losing my kidneys but doctors said it could be reversible.
Anyone ever experienced this and was it reversible.
they started me on a 500mg cortisone course yesterday as they can't wait for the biopsy results to be up. Any answers pls?
I am 5 feet 11, don't drink or smoke but I'm not the best dieter out there. Becos me and my wife work full time we do depend on delivery food. My weight originally went down from 250 to 205 after the surgery. I gained a little But I kept it in the 210-220 range mostly after that .
I know 200-205 is healthier than 220.
